6 (who?)
I'm a sucker for studies lately. I hope I wont bore you all with my studies. If I do, than my excuses, but I tent to make at least 100 of these in 3 months time.
Right now I just uploaded number 5 and I already learned so much about colors, composition and lighting.
Facebook is the first place where I upload these studies, without a title, there people can guess what movie it is from.
The first person with the right answer gets to choose the new movie.…

So this contest wont be easy on you guys. But let me lure you in with a great price!

:bulletred: 1st place winner will receive:
Elysium- Artbook from Daarken…

And a feature on my Facebook.

:bulletred:  The runner up will receive:
The Art of Assassins Creed III…

(There is one important note on this: I will order the books from Amazon. So your country will have to have an Amazon store.
I will not pay over 10 euro for shipping. If this is the case however, but you still want to receive this prize you must cover the shipping yourself.
If you won 1st place or runner up and you don't want/cannot have the books, I will give you a DA membership instead.)

:bulletblue: Deadline: :bulletblue: March 26 (Tue) (before 12 at midnight, London time)
:bulletblue: Announcement of the winners: :bulletblue: March 27 (Wed) (8 in the eveing, London time) on my livestream

:bulletorange: So what do you need to so to get these prizes? :bulletorange:
Here I will give you 5 movie Titles. Make a screenshot study of 1 hour on all 5 of them (meaning 1 hour each)
Upload them separately or in 1 file on Deviantart and send me the thumb or link.

1. Alien.
2. V for Vendetta.
3. Lord of the rings movies (or from the new Hobbit movie)
4. Kingdom of heaven.
5. Avatar (The one from James Cameron.)

You must also tell me what you have learned.
Keep to the 1 hour limit please, I will compare these studies with the rest of your artwork.

Good luck!!

These are the entries so far :)
"Make a screenshot study of 1 hour" can you please specify what you mean?
Suzanne-Helmigh Feb 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
That's exactly it.

1. Make one screenshot of each of the 5 movies I named, or get them from the internet.
2. Look at it, than paint it, look at it, paint some more etc, aka study the image like you would study a life drawing model... until your 1 hour limit is there.
3. You do this 5 times, 1 hour for each one of the 5 movie screenshots.
4. Upload that to Deviantart with an explanation about what you have learned.
